Seems like it's taking longer and longer to get 'moderated' users posts to appear on these forums. It would really be helpful to newbies to at least offer some kind of better attention to the moderation tasks. I know this is a volunteer effort, so any
positive help is appreciate. However, when we do get someone responding to a question, moderated users cannot exchange info needed to further the help being offerred.
How long does it take for a user to get 'unmoderated' status, and what needs to be in-place for that status to be granted?
Thanks for listening.

I just cleared the queue now. Sometimes moderators are not online and if those times coincide, then a backlog of posts accumulates. It is just random, but it seldom happens that none is online moderating.
I was unmoderated when I reached close to 600 messages, but there is a rule of thumb that let's moderators unmoderate users when they reach 200 and their contributions are verifiable. Just being helpful will comply with both requirements.

Ok, thanks for the info, appreciate it, as probably other do in the 'moderated' user category. The waits are just frustrating knowing that you've got someone willing to help and you can't get your update seen. It's hard to be helpful when you don't know
too much and are just seeking answers, but I guess the real keyword is to remain positive in posts. I'll work on that piece, frustration sometimes makes me sour, and I apologize to anyone I've offended.
